OAKLAND — Rookie tight end Jordan Reed and starting place kicker Kai Forbath both will miss the Washington Redskins‘ game against the Oakland Raiders. Meanwhile, tight end Fred Davis will play after missing the last game with a sprained ankle.
Reed, the team’s most productive tight end with 13 catches for 106 yards and a touchdown through three games, suffered a bruised quad muscle in the second half of last week’s game against Detroit.
He practiced in a limited capacity on Friday, but still had trouble moving.
Forbath will miss his third straight game with a groin injury. He tested out his groin on Friday, but the team opted to hold him out another game with Washington set to enter the bye this week.
John Potter will kick a third straight week for the Redskins.
Also inactive for the team are rookie linebacker Brandon Jenkins, who had nursed a sprained ankle this week, quarterback Rex Grossman, safety Jose Gumbs, guard Josh LeRibeus and defensive lineman Phillip Merling.
Raiders starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor will not play because of the concussion that he suffered last week. He received clearance to play, but the team has opted to hold him out as a precaution.
